ABSTRACT OF TALK
The growth and impact of Facebook is mind blowing, even for an industry that considers “overnight success” to be a long-range goal. Founded in a Harvard dorm room on February 4th 2004 by 19-year-old Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook now has almost 500 million active users. Most are outside of the United States. Half of them log on every day.

Facebook has already made an irreversible impact on society, marketing and politics – even driving protest around the world including in countries such as Colombia and Iran. Facebook is also changing our sense of identity: “I am on Facebook; therefore I am.”

Longtime Fortune technology writer David Kirkpatrick chronicles the rise of Facebook in one of the most anticipated books of 2010: The Facebook Effect: The Inside Story of the Company That Is Connecting The World. Kirkpatrick gained the full cooperation of Zuckerberg and his team. The Facebook Effect is the first historically authoritative account of how a simple idea became the dominant way to communicate on the Internet.

As part of its Net@40 series, the Computer History Museum is proud to present an evening of fascinating dialogue between Kirkpatrick and Zuckerberg on the past and future of Facebook. The moderator will be Guy Raz, the Peabody award-winning host of NPR’s All Things Considered.
